Yesterday, my friend, Marge, came over so I could quilt her king comforter. This has not just one, but two thick designer fabrics in the quilt sandwich. It took two people to wrestle the quilting- which basically just follows the pattern.
It came out looking pretty good…here it is hanging on my dining table:
and the bottom side of the quilt:
This quilt also has another distinction: being the first quilt so big and fluffy that I hit the outside perimeter of the top roller and still move the machine. So, for the machine quilters reading this, do you know how I resolved this dilemma?? LOL I want to see how many problem solve like I do.
I loaded Nancy’s quilt, another wedding ring quilt:
Here is a close up of the batik pattern:
Nancy Gwyn is a lovely dear friend who lives in North Carolina. She is in her 80’s and has the sweetest spirit and dear personality. We first met years ago in a small quilt group that meets in Rescue, CA each week. Anyway, Nancy is a role model and I sure hope I’m able to piece and quilt when I’m as young as Nancy! BTW, here is the Carolina Lily quilt, the Happy Quilt, and the Finished Quilt that I’ve previously quilted for Nancy and blogged about.
Anyway, I’ll take pictures as I quilt this.
Coming Soon…. an Easter Story about Parsnip Pete!! Hugs, Carla
